After a year full of power hungry / heat spewing graphic card releases, the tide of aftermarket coolers has come in. Rounding out the wave is Thermalright's latest VGA cooler, the Shaman which hints at massive performance with its 140 mm fan and eight heatpipes. This cooler is unlike any other currently on the market, and quite possibly could be tested positive for steroids due to its size.
